That's a good start. I'm going to be pretty positive, and guess a $70mil weekend in the States.

Unless it's a Boxing Day opening, almost all our openings are Thursdays and non-holiday weekends.

Only about 60. We don't get very many movies out here.

So here's to you Mr Robinson wrote:THats with thursday being the opening day on a non holiday weekend.


It was the middle of school holidays though.

If you look at the list though all the LOTR movies opened Boxing Day, and i'm sure some of the others were in the middle of holidays as well. So yeah, it's a pretty good achievement.

That's great. Aussies get to see it first, but fortunately TF is only a few days away in the States and I got my ticket already. Can't wait.

So it's already made a bunch of money. And that's one area. That's a very good sign. Let's see how long it takes the haters to come out and say that it's gonna tank.

I think your biggest hits only pull in about $135 tops on opening weekend. Also, depends on what they count as "weekend".

To hit $300 mil, you have to have a 100mil+ opening weekend, followed by 2 strong weekends at 50mil+. Then by week 7, you should hit 300mil (major international proceeds kick in at that point.)

You're right, it was only Queensland (my state) and the Northern Territory on holidays with NSW and Victoria starting this week.

So essentially it's opened for the school holidays.

btw, love the use of the JJJ drum logo in the avatar! :grin:

Lucky bastard. In SA (home sweet home), it opened in week 9 of the term. And there's 10 weeks. That's why I've got it all planned for July 8th (first Sunday of the holidays). And it shall be awesome.

It could be worse. I could be in a public school and not a private school. They get an extra week of school. SUcks to be them. 'Specially at the end of the year, where they get 9 weeks of Term 4 and we get 8! Sucked in!

We really must get our school system to co-ordinate their efforts a little better. Don't they realise that there's movie business to be done. :D

p.s. Thanks burn, the whole image was part of JJJ's smash the drum comp
